    Well first impressions are really good did some listening last night. Like how wide and open they sound. Love the wide front stage and this is with the speakers not properly set. I will do more listening today and work on the set-up over the weekend.

    Cheers.

    Very nice set of SDA's, congrats.

    I would suggest spikes along with the other mods, RDO's for sure as well. I have a pair of these completely modded and its well worth it in the end.

    Is a Cary AE-3 pair with a Parasound 2125. Not sure yet if the 585 is common ground.

    Hey thanks. Got them for the offer.
    So,how do they sound with that new Pre?

    Seller got a nice set up of vintage B&W speakers and many more all over the place.
    Never heard the old B&Ws,seems to be a lot of us chasing older speakers.
    Enjoy the 1Cs.

    This is a repeated question but here it goes.

    Is the Adcom 585 common ground?

    I will like to try the 1C's with that amp. Have look all over the web and still get mixed reviews.

    Those are beautiful. Was you able to get the cord from seller ? How do you have them set up ? Sometimes it takes awhile to get them just right. I have a stinking doorway into the office i had to work around :( smaller rooms makes it hard but the 1c's seem to still sound good
